PRECAUTION: Prolonged ingestion or absorption of silver compounds (organic or inorganic) whether originating industrially ortherapeutically leads to disposition of silver in connective tissues, producing slate-blue discoloration of the skin known as argyria.This discoloration may also appear on mucous membranes such as the margins of gums. The sclera of the eye is also stained. The natureof the pigment is not definitely known, it may be metallic silver or oxide. This discoloration exists throughout life but does not cause anysystematic symptoms. While small patches may be removed, this method is so tedious and painful as to be impractical for large areas.
